Flashback Friday — Hot Man Bein’ Hot of the Day: Viggo Mortensen Edition

It’s like bringing a gun to a knifefight.

“The way we present ourselves is a veneer, and beneath that, there are a lot more unpleasant things.” –Viggo Mortensen.

In addition to being an excellent actor, Viggo Mortensen is also a published poet, jazz musician who has released three CDs to favorable reviews, and a gifted painter whose provocative full-wall murals appear in A Perfect Murder, the 1998 adapatation of Hitchcock’s Dial “M” For Murder. Furthermore, your wife, girlfriend, mother, or sister would all leave you for him without a backward glance. Did you know?

According to the wiki, Viggo Mortensen has property near the seat of the teeny little county in the northwestern tip of the United States from which both sides of my family hail, but I have never seen him there even effing once. Total folklore. What gives, man? Next time you are in Bumfuck, Idaho, call a bitch.


“We all experience many freakish and unexpected events—you have to be open to suffering a little. The philosopher Schopenhauer talked about how out of the randomness, there is an apparent intention in the fate of an individual that can be glimpsed later on. When you are an old guy, you can look back, and maybe this rambling life has some through-line. Others can see it better sometimes. But when you glimpse it yourself, you see it more clearly than anyone.” –Viggo Mortensen

Y’all please excuse Viggo Mortensen while he blows ya mind.

    He keeps a low profile, I believe I saw him once in Home Depot, but I wasn’t sure. Didn’t really want to ask.. My daughter was in the same class as one of his nephews and he came into the class one day. I’ve seen Ben Stein a few times around here, he has been up here the past few 4th of July’s around city Beach… I did meet Tim Allen on my ship several years ago, they filmed an episode onboard.. he didn’t look like I expected. I pictured him being like 6’2″.. he’s actually pretty short, not that there’s anything wrong with that!
